Having regard to Council Directive 64/432/EEC of 26 June 1964 on animal health problems affecting intra-Community trade in bovine animals and swine(1), as last amended by Commission Regulation (EC) No 535/2002(2), and in particular Annex A(II)(7) thereto,

Whereas:

(2) Those islands should consequently be declared officially brucellosis-free in accordance with Directive 64/432/EEC.

(3) Commission Decision 1999/466/EC(3), as last amended by Decision 2000/694/EC(4), should therefore be amended accordingly.
